I here people talking about profile backlinks.. is this what your talking about? Also if so, what if I run two websites. Should I make 2 accounts on the forum and link them both? Also I have another question. If I'm ranking for specific keywords for exmaple "YouTube" should I cover my link like this? <a href="link url here">YouTube</a> I'm trying to get the basics to link building down. I signed up to over 50 forums for backlinks, I just want to know if it actually helps.
